Nikolai Bogdanov-Belsky. Grief. 1909

00 Nikolai Bogdanov-Belsky. Grief. 1909


Nikolai Bogdanov-Belsky



Whose untimely death is being mourned here? Is it a beloved wife and mother? Or is it a little son or daughter carried away by a childhood disease? Or is it the news of a son who isn’t going to return from the army because he fell on a foreign field? One doesn’t know… However, one thing is certain, no matter if the family is humble, of the middle classes, or of the nobility, the emotion felt is the same… exactly the same.
